A06106 Memo:

submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to increasing width and weight of the description specifics for an all terrain vehicle   PURPOSE: The purpose of this legislation is to update the outdated ATV definition to reflect the existence of larger all-terrain vehicles, often known as utility terrain vehicles (UTVs).   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one amends subdivision one of Section 2281 of the Vehicle and Traffic Law to increase the defined weight of an ATV to 2,000 pounds dry weight and to increase the maximum width to 80 inches. Section 2 provides that the bill shall take effect on the 30th day after it shall have become a law.   JUSTIFICATION: The current weight limit in statute for ATVs means that New Yorkers cannot register so-called utility terrain vehicles (UTVs) in this State. In an effort to encompass the industry's current and future product offerings, including the growing popularity of UTVs, this legislation updates the outdated definition by increasing the maximum allowable dry weight of such vehicles from 1,000 pounds to 2,000 pounds dry weight. It also provides for an increase in the maximum width of such vehicles from 70 inches to 80 inches. New York State should be doing all it can to expand one of its strongest economic sectors, tourism. This legislation is a step forward in that it will enable more people to register their vehicles and to visit our trails which will help local economies.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 02/12/20 A9818 - referred to transportation
